The Labour Party of Adammia is currently one of five political parties in the Empire of Adammia. It was established by Lord Sir Reginald Hall on 18 July 2015, and is now led by Lord Sir Sam Maude. Its other members include Lord Sir Paul McKenna, Lord Sir David Hall and Eleanor Hall.

History

The foundation of the Labour Party on 18 July 2015 was seen as something as a surprise, as Sir Reginald Hall had been expected to join Emperor Mother Jayne's newly-founded Moderate Party. The party went on to see considerable success during the late First Era, controlling 4 out of 12 Ruling Council seats following the 2016 local elections, when Eleanor Hall gained Myway from the Liberal Party's Debbie Shaw. The party's prime ministerial candidate, Sir Paul McKenna, lost the 2015 national election to Emperor Mother Jayne, but won in 2016, becoming the first Labour Prime Minister.

The party performed poorly in the 2017 national election, slipping into third place. Following the government transition to the new Birmingham provinces at the start of the Second Era, the party failed to recruit any new members and lost all of its Ruling Council representation, causing widespread belief that it had been all but eliminated as a mainstream political party. However, Lord Sir Sam Maude joined the party in June 2018, offering it a lifeline. Sir Reginald Hall finally stepped down as party president in September 2018, making way for Lord Maude.
